The Weirdo Ripper by Yadin Nicol was developed back in 2011/12, with Kelly Slater, Dane Reynolds and Nathaniel Curren also providing feedback through the R & D stages. It was unveiled at the 2012 US Open, when Dane Reynolds put on a scintilating display to demonstrate the board's advantages in the tricky Huntington conditions.

The Weirdo Ripper is a A M A Z I N G small to medium wave board, with a user friendly design, full volume and a wide point far up on the board for ease of paddling. It has a  square winged swallow tail and a vee bottom.

But this is not an old style vee, rather a modern spiral Vee (a.k.a. Vee concave) which enables the board to go super fast from rail to rail. But because the centre is higher than the rail it holds the wave and gives the board heaps of control at the same time.

Although the Weirdo Ripper has thinner rails than the Dumpster Diver (if you're familiar with that), they're still reasonably full and forgiving - but not cumbersome. Combine this with the winged swallow tail and you have a surfboard that you can really drive hard without sliding out.

Please note: Logo colour may be different from illustrated.

Fins not included.
